Dialight Customer Takes Home Industrial Retrofit of the Year Award at LuxLive


London, UK (November 10th, 2011) – Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, is proud to announce another industry award for its DuroSite LED High Bay, this time for LUX magazine’s Industrial Retrofit of the Year. The award was collected by customer Paul Cope, Managing Director of March Foods, at the first annual LUX Live trade show.

The winning installation is a 6,500 sq metre warehouse facility in Cambridgeshire where the 150W Dialight LED High Bays paired with occupancy sensors replaced 84 450W high pressure sodium fittings, resulting in more than 70% energy savings, while reducing the amount of CO2 emissions by 100 tonnes per annum. In addition to the energy savings and environmental benefits, March Foods now enjoys maintenance free lighting and no longer requires regular use of a cherry picker to replace lights.
